Indy 500: Fast Nine Pole Shootout
The Fast Nine Shootout is a recent addition to Indy 500 first-day qualifying.
The concept adds an element of drama that has been missing since the long gone days of track record speeds. The Fast Nine gives the fastest nine first-day qualifiers from earlier in the day a chance to have a final run for the pole position.
And what happened on this Saturday's Fast Nine will likely be remembered for years to come.
